Bought this PUP new last year. We really like it and have had no problems. Getting it out for 1st trip this year and taking care of de-winterization and maintenance. When lubing lift cable had no issues hitting the rear grease fitting but had an issue with the front fitting. The cable assembly runs thru the water tank (u shaped) and I could not get the grease gun on the fitting. I skipped it for now because there was evidence that it was greased when assembled. Looks like I may have to remove water tank to hit the fitting. Any one else have an issue like this? Thanks to this forum everything else went ok. About how long do anodes last in the water heater. Mine is already showing some wear.
